Re: Driving License

This came up on our internal "USA immigrants" board at work recently. It seems to be a bit of a crapshoot as to whether you can get the NJ DMV to waive the road test for someone with a full foreign...

Re: Micro Chips on US Credit Cards

Just got a replacement Chase debit card and it is contactless. It even works on the new OMNY readers on the NYC Subway. No more swiping Metrocards at long last!

Re: Passports

There is. It's called TIMATIC and is used by the airlines to check travellers' documents validity for their journeys. It's what they use to decide whether to let you board or not. There's quite a...

Re: Can a relative with a criminal record affect my chances of a green card?

I can't see how any of that would make you inadmissible to the US as a visitor or immigrant. If your brother carried on a criminal career and became a prominent criminal, it's not impossible that...

Re: iPhone / iTunes related question.

The Guardian app is available internationally. For things like the BBC and Sky you may (will for BBC) need a VPN to make it look like you're in the UK to use them.

Re: Best visa for me?

No, it's nothing to do with the GFA or Irish nationality per se, as the rules pertaining to what is, and isn't Ireland or Great Britain for the DV were in place before the GFA, and the DV is purely...
